PRE-ORDER GARLIC BULBS WILL SHIP AFTER SEPTEMBER 1, 2019 Garlic can be shipped to U.S. customers only except northern Idaho.

 

(Softneck) Very Rare. This is a big, pearly-pink Artichoke variety that was found growing in an old Santa Fe garden in 1998. It originally had very small cloves the size of sunflower seeds and it is now our biggest softneck garlic. We have sent it to growers across the country and it seems to grow well in both coastal and cold regions – grower Paul Parma in Southern California said he'd never seen a garlic so huge. It has a rich, classic Italian flavor.

Plant individual garlic cloves in the fall, prior to the ground freezing, in well-prepared beds of soil that is rich in organic matter. Plant cloves 1 to 2 inches deep about 8 inches apart making sure that the tip of the clove is pointing up and the footprint of the root is down. In northern climates it may be necessary to cover with mulch prior to the hard freezes of winter and then uncover in spring. Provide adequate irrigation and weed control in order to achieve maximum bulb size. Harvest scapes when they have made one full curl and before becoming erect (can still be used erect however the texture is tougher). Garlic is ready for harvesting when the bulbs are completely filled out and plump. Watch for the bottom two leaves to brown and die back and for the rest of the plant to begin to yellow. Test dig a few bulbs to determine if crop is ready. Discontinue irrigation for about two weeks prior to harvest. Do not pull garlic up by the stalk but lift the garlic by digging with a fork or shovel. Harvested garlic should be spread out or hung away from direct sunlight for two to three weeks to cure (air conditioned location is okay). Make sure curing bulbs have adequate air circulation and are not piled atop of one another.

What are the pros? big cloves and cures well

What are the cons? none

Review:

this is the 1st year I grew it and the results were great!! I will grow it again. It cured so well. I am in the PNW so we have a marine climate...a little moist. I love the flavor for either raw, in caprese, or cooked in my red sauce. The heads developed layers of paper during the curing process which, I am hoping, will store throughout the year.

What are the pros? Did very well in SF Bay area

Review:

Enjoyed a grand harvest of large bulbs in early June. Has a good, mild flavor. It's not as hot, spicy, and pungent as I'm used to and prefer. It can be chewed raw without much consequence. But I was very happy with how low-maintenance it was to grow and how well it produced good-quality and yummy bulbs. I'm still enjoying them today and have enough to last me for several more weeks.

Review:

This was my first time growing garlic and it was so fun! I planted a half a pound each of this and another variety. This one was ready first. First I harvested the scapes (yum), and just pulled the last of the large bulbs on July 8th. 2 harvests for the price of one! Very hardy, easy to grow, large, and delicious. I would definitely recommend trying this variety. I made beautiful garlic braids from them as well.

Review:

Planted in September in Boise, harvested mid-July. Large uniform bulbs free of mold or mildew. Began to grow well from the start. We had a horrible winter with tons of snow and rain and these bulbs came through wonderfully. We will definitely plant again.

Review:

I've been trying various varieties and methods to grow garlic in the warm winters of Texas for years and this was my very first success. I started by vernalizing the bulbs in the refrigerator through September and October, and then mulched heavily on planting. In early June when the leaves started dying back, I dug up the biggest heads of garlic I've ever seen. They're delicious! I'm so happy to have found this variety!
